Dave Rand is an experienced boat Captain and Registered Maine Guide, so you can be assured of a safe fishing or pleasure tour. Dave started fishing with his grandfather Frank when he was five near Bar Harbor. By the age of eight, he was tying flies and frequently fishing along the tidal waters of the Penobscot River for Atlantic Salmon. His passion for Striper fishing led him to start Dock Side Charters, which allows him to meet great people and share his enthusiasm for fishing and being out on the water.
Our New Boat!
Dock Side Charters has upgraded our boat to an absolutely beautiful 23’ 6” Sailfish, center-powered by a Yamaha four stroke 300HP engine. The 9′ beam and Deep V hull provides an extremely smooth and comfortable ride. There is plenty of seating and room to move about the boat. All you have to do sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. We’ll find the fish!
